3.4/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

From the bottle to a tall pint glass, this one pours a muddy red-brown with thin brown head, it certainly is not the most appealing beer to look at. Smelled strongly of roast coffee and bitter chocolate, with a taste to match. Chocolate up front followed up by a bitter, burnt finish. Mouthfeel was certainly thin for a porter. If it was more acceptable, this would probably be a really nice beer to wake up and drink for breakfast.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Very light brown, almost a dark amber color. Head dissipates quickly. Mellow aroma, some floral notes I'm guessing come from hops, somewhat unusual for a porter. Sweet with mellow bitterness and astringency from the hops and roasted malts. Very bubbly on the tongue. Mellow is the word here, almost a little watered-down to me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown color with a 1 inch mocha head that sticks around.

Smell is interesting with dark malt and coffee, chocolate dominating, as well as a slight tartness in there as well.

Taste is more subdued than the nose with chocolate and coffee, dark fruits, and bitterness from hops.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, medium to light carbonation.

Overall a nice porter from a small local brewery.

Pours two fingers of head on a medium brown colored body.
The aroma is pine, chocolate and roasted malt. A wonderful mixture.
The taste is pine bitterness with roasted malt and dark chocolate rounding it out. The level of bitterness is uncharacteristic for the style but it fit well.
The texture is smooth with a crisp finish and moderate carbonation with a little fizz in the middle.
A great porter with a unique twist.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle purchased at the Rocket Market in Spokane. No freshness date on the bottle.

Poured a dark brown color that took on a rubyish hue when held up to light. Decent sized off-white head hung around for a few minutes before receding to a thin skiff. No lace to speak of.

Coffee and brown sugar in the nose, with the coffee slightly winning out. The nose is subtle, but correct for the style.

The flavor initially is roasty and somewhat bitter, very coffee-like. The brown sugary sweetness then becomes apparent, but to a lesser degree, just enough to provide a good balance.

Medium bodied, with a slightly coating mouthfeel.

A decent porter, nothing great. I have to admit that no breakfast was consumed alongside this “Breakfast Porter,” so perhaps an important ingredient was missed. Still, though not my first choice for a porter, I’d drink this again.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Not black, but a dark dark opaque brown. Poured a 12oz bottle into a 12oz tulip glass. Very light head disappeared in the first minute after pouring.

S: Nice coffee smell with a bit of sweetness.

T: Extra rich roast and coffee flavor. Nice bitter sharpness rounds out the full flavor nicely. A bit of sweetness at the finish.

M: Starts off full and ends thin. A bit of a lingering aftertaste. Very very filling.

O: Pretty good, albeit a bit much for breakfast. A bit of a flat taste kind of detracted from the overall feel, but I really liked the coffee flavor.

12oz bottle poured into a large snifter

Pours brown, seems very light for a porter. Almost no head. Smell is rich, chocolatey, malty, really really nice.

Taste is chocolatey. Some smokey malts as well. Pretty darn tasty.

Mouthfeel is light and airy. Overall, based on the looks, I wasn't expecting much, but I find this to be a quite tasty beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Two finger khaki head with long retention. Fluffy head with tented, sticky lacing. Deep auburn color with thick particulate. Very cloudy. Strange looking porter.

S- Coffee, licorice, smoky. Burnt sort of smells. Odd.

T- Muddy flavors competing. Like bad coffee.

M- Thick, cloudy feel. Sticky linger.

O- Not a fan of this beer. Seems to be confused about what it wants to be.

Poured into a Maudite snifter. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin tan head that dissipates into a ring around the glass and thin film with some lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, toasted malt, a hint of chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows aroma with toasted malt, grassy hops and light coffee, finishing with light hops and coffee, slightly smoky. Medium bodied. A pleasant low key porter.

Comes out of the tap a barely translucent reddish chocolate brown with a nice yellow-beige head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is smoky and chocolaty and has an undertone of coffee as well as a nutty hint. Smoky flavor has firm chocolate and coffee tones with nutty and toffee hints. Smooth, pleasing texture is fairly fizzy. Look for this one!

Serving type: on-tap
